Back Up to Cloud

Back Up to the Cloud

NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to back up your VMware VMs directly to a cloud server such as Amazon or Azure. The backup copy to cloud functionality introduces additional reliability to support your data protection efforts. With a valid backup copy stored offsite, you will always have the means for data recovery, even when the original backup is rendered unavailable.

Instantly Recover

Our free VMware backup solution enables you to perform both a full-scale recovery and granular restore. You can recover an entire VMware VM or bring back individual files or objects of various applications and databases such as MS Exchange, MS SQL, MS Active Directory, SharePoint, Oracle, etc. On top of that, you can even recover VMware backups into Hyper-V VMs and vice versa.
